Molly Goddard

This Central Saint Martins graduate created her debut collection for a mere $1,000 and cast friends and other real women from the street in her fashion show. Not only did Dover Street Market place an immediate order, but also Goddard won the prestigious British Fashion Award for Best Emerging Talent, and Rihanna became a fan.

Goddard’s fall/winter 2017 show on Saturday had a dinner party set to highlight her festive designs: bright colors, volume, smocks, yards and yards of tulle. One beautiful tiered dress had RiRi’s name all over it!

Diana Tsui at the Cut said, “Clearly we should all wear tulle to our next dinner party and drink plenty of wine while doing so!” We could not agree more!

J.W.Anderson

One of the biggest name to show during London Fashion Week, J.W.Anderson is a favorite with editors, buyers, stylists, and the city’s cool kids. Designer Jonathan Anderson is no doubt the prince of LFW. The crowds of street-style influencers, photographers, and fans that gather outside his show every season is a testament to his royal status in the industry.

There were plenty of luxurious furs, leather, and deconstructed pieces to satisfy the most hardcore Anderson fans. The must-have items? A pair of white sandal heels, patchwork designs, a one-shoulder dress, and of course, the handbags.

Emilia Wickstead

Emilia Wickstead is a favorite of the Duchess of Cornwall, Kate Middleton, and plenty of “it” girls and models. Her feminine silhouettes and classic palette are perfect for that cool ladylike style. Ripped jeans and sneakers she is not!

At Wickstead’s “My Girl” show on Saturday, the front row was filled with ladylike cool girls, including Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, and English actress Eleanor Tomlinson. The collection, filled with sparkly dresses, ruffled tops, and even a pair of high-waisted jeans, will definitely keep the duchess and all her ladies in waiting happy come fall.
